Process of Fitting Carpet in Poole
If you would like to fit the carpet yourself or would like to know how Peter Newman Flooring would fit your carpet, here is a simple guide of the process.
- Firstly, the room that the carpet would be fitted in would need to be fully measured to ensure that the carpet fits perfectly. Draw a simple diagram and outline where you have structural recesses in the way. This will help identify how much carpet you need.
- After measurements have taken place, its time to get all the tools that you need to fit your carpet. You will need tools such as hack saw, gloves, carpet tape, drill and many more.
- Now you’ve got your measurements and tools, you’ll need to remove the old flooring that you have in place. You’ll need to make sure you wear knee pads and that the floor is completely even ready for your carpet to be fitted.
- Now is the time for preparing your sub floor. This will be your base before your carpet is fitted. 3mm hardboard sheets are normally best; make sure there are no nails sticking out once the boards are laid out.
- Once the boards have been placed evenly, the carpet underlay or gripper would need to be placed to ensure that the carpet stays firmly affixed to the floor.
After all these steps have been done, it is now time for your carpet fitting in Poole to take place.
How to Fit Carpet
Now that the floor is ready for the carpet, it’s time to get the carpet fitted to perfection. Here is a quick guide into how to get your carpet fitted in Poole and Bournemouth and the rest of the UK:
- Lay the carpet loosely into position and make sure it’s smooth with excess carpet at the edges.
- Cut the excess edges carefully.
- Starting from the longest wall, being fitting the carpet using a carpet tucker along the skirting board.
- Cut along the edge, around 5mm higher than the carpet.
- Now take the carpet stretcher, teeth facing down. Push it down firmly so the carpet grips.
- The excess carpet would need to be pushed down between the skirting and the gripper. Do this for each wall.
- If you need to fit the carpet around tricky shapes such as pillars, then you would need to cut the edges in several places then trim it to make it straight. Across a doorway, you would need to cut the carpet so it’s in line with the flooring to the next room. A door bar would need to be placed over this.
